Real estate agents in Sydney are not able to offer a lease to someone who hasn't viewed the property. If you're moving here, you'll need a temporary base while you find a longer term home.
Moving from interstate or overseas means a lot of upheaval, and finding long-term accommodation often means finding somewhere to stay short-term until your finances or long-term housing can be arranged.
There are several options available for short-term stay such as backpackers hostels, hotels or serviced apartments. Some of the on-campus colleges also offer short-term stays during the winter and summer vacations. We have listed a few options for you to have a look at – remember, book your short-term accommodation in advance as it will be popular at the start of semester. In all cases, you should make your own enquiries about the suitability and condition of the accommodation.
If you need to move urgently, please contact us and we will help you with options for moving, or provide information about emergency housing and short-term housing.
The Financial Assistance Service can help enrolled students with essential living costs.
